GETTING OFF, by Lawrence Block writing as Jill Emerson

This won’t be for everyone as you might tell from the title, and the very naked knife-carrying woman on the cover (and the fact that the extremely talented Block’s writings so often stray this way). Few people write better sex scenes (there’s twenty or thirty in this little volume alone) than this guy. So strap yourself in, and hang on. A raunchy take on the progress of a mass murderer leaves that TV show in the dust.  Jennifer…Kitty… Carol…Kim…Audrey…her name changes but her plan doesn’t. Once they’ve made love, they’re dead. But why? Be prepared for a few-holds-barred story in Block’s inimitable deadpan style. It’s a 4, with 5+ sex.
